After all the positive reviews we decided to book dinner during our stay at the Hilton.
The restaurant is rather small and we found it noisy and cramped inside. So for a family it will be not the right place to eat. Thee food we had was amazing (Malai Kofta) rice portion rather small and has to be purchase seperately. The next day we ordered take away (save 15% of a la cart) Warning, if it says mild hot it was actually so hot we could not eat our potato dish. Some dishes are not available sometimes.
Fantastic Asian Fusion/Thai/Indian/Nyonya restaurant serving wonderful food in a relaxed atmosphere with lovely views of the Macdonnell ranges in the distance. They also serve fabulous desserts (something not many Asian restaurants do) Try the Sri Lankan love cake or the coconut panna cotta- they are both delicious. The food is also good value and staff is delightful.
The food was amazing - shared 4 choices between our group and all were delicious, even if one wasn't one I'd have chosen myself. There was a Barramundi Meen Moolie, Beef Masaman, Pork Belly & Cashew Chicken that was my favourite - unlike any other cashew chicken I've ever had.
It was a little pricey but well worth it. On the night we went we did have a long wait (over 30 minutes) for our food and although we were told this is unusual I did have to take a star off for that.
Not somewhere I'd necessarily take younger kids as there wasn't really a kids menu as such and food was strong flavoured, but great if you're looking for a special meal with good friends.
